      Thank you for your feedback.
      The list summarizes the general classification of tea and the common tea.

      The Witches of Eastwick Fruit Tea
      Paris Champs Fruit Tea
      Dark Forest Fruit Tea

    • TeaVivre

      Thank you for your inquiry, we are sorry to tell you that we have little knowledge about Jiaogulan tea. This plant is usually treated as a kind of Chinese herbal medicine, which is very valuable here and has great value in medical and health care.

  • Hi there,

    Are there actually substances of Orchid in the ShuCheng Lan Hua?


    • TeaVivre

      Thank you for your inquiry, the name “ShuCheng Lan Hua” does not mean that people put flowers or any substance of Orchid inside tea leaves to strength its aroma. There are two versions of meanings about its name:
      1. The shape of young tea tips linked to its branch like an orchid.
      2. When the orchid flowers are in bloom, people begin to harvest them, so the tea leaves usually have the fragrance of orchids.
      Hope this can be helpful for your concern.

  • hi there, I am looking for the best tea for loosing weight to sell if you have one please I need your recommendation.

  • Lyn

    I received this tea: Tian Yi, and cannot locate what type of tea it is from any list thus far. The labeling is entirely in Chinese and I am unable to read it. I would appreciate any information you would be able to provide.
    thanks so much

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Lyn, Tian Yi Tea is the brand of a tea company, not the tea’s name. If possible, you can take some pictures of the tea’s package (both front and back), and send to us: support@teavivre.com. We will try out best to find the tea for you.

      Hi asgar ali, if you want some free tea samples, now we have a Free Tea Tasting Activity for all customers, from which you can get free tea samples. Or if you want to do business with us, you may contact our customer service. Thank you.

  • I received Taiwan Da Ye Lin Tea from a friend but I can’t find its exact equivalent name in the list. There is no information written in English on its packaging. Can you at least confirm if is safe to take. Thank you!

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Jocelyn, the Taiwan Da Ye Lin Tea you mentioned seems to be the same with Taiwan Da Yu Ling Tea, which is a kind of high mountain oolong tea. In chinese it is named as 大禹陵茶. It should be safe to take if the tea you received is from standard tea manufactuer.

  • I am trying to locate a tea named “eyelash of the swan.” I had it on a flight to Asia years ago-the most magnificent taste ever! I’d be most grateful if you could assist me. Thank you!
